About This Item

(Bloemfontein: A. C. White, 1929). 8vo; original orange cloth; pp. (xii) + 203. Cover rubbed and lightly soiled; hinges tender; gift inscription to front free endpaper; moderate foxing throughout; archival tape repair to one leaf of prelims. at gutter. Good. 'It is the lot of every writer to have their more recent books compared to their first, and it is a universal fact that they are "not so good". Actually, if you study the matter carefully, it will be found that the later books are just as bad as the first. When somebody once said to a famous editor that his paper isn't as good as it was, he replied, "It never was". One of the difficulties of a scribbler, such as I, is to please everybody. Each year I receive a very large number of letters from readers. Some say that they hope I will write more verse; others hope that I will write less. Some hope that I will continue to write in a light humorous way - others hope that I will write more serious stuff. And here I wish to thank sincerely the many kind people who have been courteous enough to refrain from writing to tell me not to write at all.' .
